The Student Organization credit card can only be used by the organization treasurer in Campus Center 106. Items are ordered on-line using this card.
The Carry Out credit card is for last minute, local purchases under $100. The treasurer needs to request the card, but does not have the be the person using the card.
Both cards must be reserved at least two days in advance through The Smith Social Network, Treasurer Support Services forms section.
Event Planning Process
After your space and resources have been reserved in 25Live, organizations will need to complete the event planning process in The Smith Social Network by registering your events. Through the new process, all aspects of your event will be submitted for approval at the same time, including banner reservations, fundraising requests, film and movie right permissions, contracts and you will be able to request and get approval for everything you need in just one place. Whether you are looking for help in choosing the right space or would like to talk through your event with someone, the staff is eager to work with you to ensure that your event is successful.
